Kathie Lee & Hoda: Hoda’s Dog Blake
On a dull, gray Winesday Wednesday in New York City, Kathie Lee & Hoda brightened things up with some great discussions. Earlier in the morning, Hoda walked her new dog, Blake, who didn’t enjoy the rainy weather. She’s also having trouble getting him to eat his food, so if you’re a dog expert and have any suggestions, help Hoda out!
Three Cleveland Women Found Alive
Right now, the country is buzzing with the news of three missing Cleveland women found alive after 10 years. “So rarely do we have happy endings to these things,” Kathie Lee pointed out. The women were being held captive with chains in a house with the windows boarded up. So why didn’t any of the neighbors call the police?
Kathie Lee & Hoda discussed how it seems the police and neighbors missed some very important warning signs. According to reports, none of the windows were ever open, and residents of the street had even seen the women, naked, in the backyard from time to time. One of the women’s captors had a history of domestic violence, so why did no one investigate his home?
Hoda noted that society doesn’t seem as neighborly as it once was; for the most part, people keep to themselves and don’t really get involved in others’ business. But if something feels suspicious, it’s our duty to report it. Like it says on the NYC subways, “If you see something, say something!”
What If Politicians Were Women?
Recently, Mark Sanford won his congressional seat in South Carolina even after an affair created a national scandal. This begs the question, what if Mark Sanford was a woman? Would women politicians still be accepted after scandalous behavior?
If Anthony Weiner was Antonia Weiner, or Chris Christie was Christina Christie, would they continue to remain popular? Kathie Lee & Hoda both agreed that there are many double standards.
“We still have a long way to go,” Kathie Lee admitted.
Pregnant Kim Kardashian US Weekly Cover
Just one day after her Met Gala dress received criticism, a pregnant Kim Kardashian is now on the cover of US Weekly wearing a bikini. The headline reads, “You call this fat?” but Kathie Lee & Hoda both believe Kim looks great.
Sure, Kim is heavier than usual, but have we forgotten that she’s carrying a baby? Kathie Lee recalled how uncomfortable she was with both her pregnancies and how unfair it is to judge a woman based on how she looks during this time. So leave Kim alone!
